Austrian pensioner fined $475 for phoning her son

VIENNA, April 9 (RIA Novosti) - An Austrian court has ordered a 73-year-old woman in the southernmost Austrian state of Carinthia to pay 360 euros ($475) for frequent calls to her son, local media said on Thursday.

The woman's son filed a lawsuit saying he was tired of answering the almost 50 phone calls a day he received from his mother over a 2 1/2-year period, the Kleine Zeitung newspaper reported.

The court ruled that the pensioner's phone calls could be characterized as stalking.

Meanwhile, the woman said she just wanted to talk to her son.
